Plenty of stars fell by the wayside throughout the day including Fedor Holz, Scott Seiver, Adrian Mateos, and David Peters.

Day 2 will take place Sunday at 12 p.m. noon local time in the Amazon room, with the field playing down to a final table of five, which will be streamed Monday on PokerGO.

Registration will remain open until cards are in the air again, where it’s expected there will be several more last-minute entries, likely including Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, and Jeremy Ausmus, who were still finishing up the $50,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller final table as this event bagged up for the night.

The action will resume at Level 13 with blinds of 15,000 and 30,000 with a 30,000 big blind ante.

Lin Forces a Fold From Roungeris

Niveau 12 : 10,000/25,000, 25,000 ante

Ren Lin opened to 50,000 from the cutoff and was called by Antonios Roungeris in the small blind.

Roungeris check-called a 50,000 bet from Lin on the {3-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop and both players checked on the {6-Hearts} turn.

Roungeris led out for 80,000 when the {7-Hearts} completed the board and Lin took some time before raising to 220,000. Roungeris quickly folded and Lin collected the pot.

Dylan Linde
Dylan Linde

In a battle of the blinds and on a board of {10-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{j-Clubs} Brian Rast fired out a bet of 45,000 chips and was called by Dylan Linde.

The dealer dealt the river card {k-Diamonds} and Rast slowed down and checked. Next, after some thought, Linde placed out one 100k chip into the middle. After a few moments, Rast opted to call and mucked after Linde tabled the winner with his {j-Spades}{6-Spades} for a full house, jacks full of kings, and was awarded the pot.
